Broadway Hollywood Lofts is a ten-story 96 condo Historic High-rise in Hollywood. Built in 1928, it housed BH Dyas Co Department Store until 1931 when Broadway took over its 30 year lease. Broadway Lofts was designed by architect Frederick Rice Dorn (1858-1930) in the Beaux Arts style. It has a strong resemblance to the Taft Building across the street which was built in 1923 by different architects. In 1938 Broadway Built a Streamline Modern Addition next store that was designed by Parkinson & Parkinson.

There are two other condo buildings nearby: Historic Hollywood and Vine Lofts is on the North East Corner of Hollywood and Vine, and the W Hotel residences a half block east on Hollywood Blvd.

Broadway Lofts gets its name from the Broadway Department store chain, which had its “Broadway-Hollywood” store there from 193z to 1982. In 2007 the building was converted from an office building to residential lofts by Kor Group. Kor Group did a similar conversion project a year earlier Downtown at Eastern Columbia Lofts.

There will always be people with spread out suburban sensibilities, Broadway owners are not one of these people. Living in the Broadway is like living in a small village, in an urban setting. You eventually get to know all your neighbors who live in the building, while you are socializing in the common areas, at the pool, or waiting for your car.

Owners of Broadway Hollywood Lofts enjoy substantial savings on their property tax because the building has a Mills Act contract. They pay around 1/3 of their normal annual property taxes.

Location

Broadway Hollywood Lofts is located on the famed intersection of Hollywood and Vine.

1645-n-vine-entrance

The Walk of Fame is at your front door. There is so much activity going on in re-invigorated Hollywood, you’ll never tire of things to do!

On the weekend catch a movie at ArcLight Theaters, or watch a music concert at the Hollywood Palladium or Music Box Fonda Theater. Feeling in the mood for a musical? The Pantages theater is walking distance and gets all the broadway boxoffice hits. Not to mention nearby Hollywood Bowl and its summer concert series. Magic Castle is just plain cool. The Brickyard Pub, Lucky Strike Bowling.

Want to grab a bite to eat? There are plenty of restaurants nearby:  Katsuya, Chloe,  Beso, Musso and Franks’s, tender greens, shop house to name a few.

Or maybe you just need a drink? Drais night club in the W hotel, IO West improv, 33 taps, and Avalon night club are all within ambulation distance.

There is a trader Joe’s market at Vine and Selma for groceries. Sunday mornings is the Hollywood Farmers’ Market on Ivar. I should be map at them because I parked on Ivar overnight, and rushed to get to my car before 8:00 am, and my car was towed at 6:00 am. Just never park there on a Saturday night.

Starbucks for your morning coffee routine is across the street in ground level of Taft building. Transportation is easy with the Redline Subway station entrance and easy access to 101 Freeway.

REAL ESTATE

 The Broadway Hollywood condos are true loft floorplans with no wall separating the bedrooms. Many owners have added curtains, privacy screens, or glass block walls to their bedroom to create separation. The condos are Live/Work so you can do business.

Most of the condos are single level floor plans. Only condos: #1008, #1006, #1005, #1004, #1002,# 909, #813, #814 are multilevel.

One thing I like is the HUGE 15 ft ceilings in the hallways and condos. You get a real “LOFTY” feeling when you are inside this building. I have to say that all the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. There is a big freight elevator, in addition to the main 2 elevators, which makes moving easier. The Freight Elevator is the only elevator that goes to the rooftop where the pool and gym are located.

There are:

1BR (29) 900sqft – 1,250 sqft

2BR (67) 1,400sqft – 2,200 sqft

North View

Because it’s a high-rise, condos facing the North Side and to a lesser extent East Side have great views of the Hollywood Hills and Capital Records building, and Griffith Park and the Hollywood Sign. South view is blocked by Plaza Hotel except for the 10th floor, and West View is blocked by Streamline Modern building.

Kitchens were finished with European style cabinets and Amana Stainless steel appliances. A lot of owners add kitchen islands to customize their kitchens.

Condos came standard with exposed concrete floors, however some owners have installed wood flooring.

A handful of condos have a modest balcony, most do not have balconies.
